After the tragic news of the death of 10 month old Vicky this morning, it is vital that we don’t forget the whales that are still living in captivity.
Up until the 28th of June NOAA are excepting comments from the public regarding their opinion on whether Lolita should be listed along with the rest of the Southern Resident orca population.
This is one of the best chances we have ever had in getting Lolita out of that box, because if Lolita is listed, it will endow her with more legal rights and make it harder for Miami SeaQuarium to keep without the companionship of another orca.
But just 250 people have left comments so far. To put that into perspective, over eight and a half thousand people left comments on the document concerning Georgia Aquariums appeal to import 18 wild belugas from Russia.
Please consider leaving a (polite and concise) comment here.
If you want some advice with want to write or you want some links, feel free to send a PM to any of the anti cap blogs, we’d all be happy to help.

It’s widely accepted that dogs, tigers, elephants and lions can suffer mental illnesses
depression, anxiety, even psychosis
so why is it that people will not accept that dolphins and orca, which are far more intelligent, can also suffer from mental disorders?
Especially considering some of the mind-blowingly awful shit some of them have had to go through during their formative years, and even now.
